Is it time we looked at scrapping the mens and ladies As and Bs for leagues along the same lines as the Scillies racing?
With clubs having a good number of members one year and poor the next would a league style system give crews a far better way in which to compete. Allowing crews to be pitched against crews of the same standard and progress rather than a make do A crew (full of vets) having to compete at A crews and coming near the back?
I believe that a league system will help crews grow and not to feel worthless after racing to the best of their abilities in a race that they should never be in! After all as an organisation we have over 60 clubs now, not 12 so why are we competing in the same way we did 20 years ago?
